Dell Upgrades Endpoint Security Portfolio
February 1, 2018
criminals are continuously shifting their attack techniques to better
target endpoints. As more than one-third (39 percent) of cyber attacks
are now non-malware based, adversaries can exploit gaps in traditional
antimalware solutions used in isolation. Considering 50 percent of
organizations also have insufficient endpoint or network visibility
during incident response engagements3, it’s clear many businesses are
injecting ineffective security tools into their environments, ultimately
adding complexity without directly addressing the problem. These
disconnected solutions require ongoing diligence and expert resources to
analyze a multitude of security alerts and identify compromised devices.
Yet, with the growing cybersecurity skills gap, businesses don’t have
the resources needed to manage their security infrastructure
“Organizations are faced with what
may feel like an exponentially expanding threat landscape and a mixed
bag of solutions to fix it,” said Brett Hansen, vice president and
general manager of client software and security solutions, Dell. “To
meet the evolving needs of our customers and stay ahead of ever-evolving
threats, Dell is offering organizations the tools they need to keep
their devices and data secure.”
CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent: This next-generation antivirus (NGAV) solution uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to stop malware and malware-free attacks, offering organizations enhanced protection without requiring signatures and the heavy updates that come with them.
CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent and Insight: In addition to the NGAV solution, customers can advance their threat prevention capabilities with Device Control and Falcon Insight. This enables full visibility into endpoint threat activity and real-time remediation designed to prevent, detect and investigate incidents and stop threats.
Secureworks Managed Endpoint Protection: Combined with CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent and Insight and Device Control, this offering provides customers with 24x7 managed services from Secureworks to monitor the state of endpoints for indications of threat actor activity. Secureworks Security Operations Center and Counter Threat Unit will investigate events to determine severity, accuracy and context to suggest remedial actions, giving organizations peace of mind around the clock.
Secureworks Incident Management Retainer: In the event of a serious security incident, Secureworks will deploy its On-Demand Incident Response Specialist Team who are highly skilled to respond to and mitigate a cyber incident at any time. Now, organizations with and without security operations centers can have the support and expertise needed in critical times. This service can also be used to build a proactive response plan for future security incidents.
Dell SafeGuard and Response will be available globally in March 2019 through Dell and its authorized channel partners.
Additionally, the comprehensive CrowdStrike Falcon platform can also be purchased through Dell.
